Strategic Gaming: South China Sea Conflict 2015


Invited by Alfred Gerstl and Josef Falko Loher, about 40 Students of various backgrounds, both Bachelor and Master students, left the ordinary class room for a very special course at the Department of East Asian Studies.

Taking the South China Sea Conflict as a real world background scenario, the two members of the Chair of East Asian Economy and Society (EcoS) organised a two day strategic game which simulated a highly complex and dynamic conflict involving main actors to act, react and interact in bi- and multilateral settings. Students were able to gain valuable knowledge about the conflict in focus, its various actors, economic, political and military dimensions.
